Il presente contributo analizza la relazione tra la partecipazione in cooperative sociali e il capitale sociale, inteso in termini di norme di comportamento e attitudini. Lo studio si basa su un dataset originale, costruito attraverso la somministrazione di questionari, elaborati dall’autore, a lavoratori e volontari di cooperative attive nella provincia di Parma. Principale elemento di interesse è il focus sulla differenza di impatto della partecipazione in cooperative sociali sul capitale sociale rispettivamente di volontari e lavoratori retribuiti, contrariamente alla normale attenzione dedicata ai soli volontari di organizzazioni nonprofit. L’analisi sembra rivelare un effetto maggiore della partecipazione sul capitale sociale dei volontari rispetto a quello dei lavoratori
